Investment advisory firm Horizon Cash Management, which specializes in cash management solutions for the alternative investment industry, has hired Matthew Boice as vice president and credit analyst.
In his new role, Boice works closely with the portfolio management team and chief investment officer and is responsible for portfolio credit research. In this capacity, he seeks to identify both opportunities and potential trouble spots in the fixed income marketplace before they become industry knowledge. This early detection analysis provides great value to Horizon’s portfolio managers and clients.
“It is increasingly clear that volatility in the market is driven equally by economic, political and regulatory metrics that require careful monitoring and evaluation. Matt brings substantial fundamental analysis to Horizon,” said Michael Markowitz president of the firm.
Prior to joining Horizon, Boice worked for UBS Global Asset Management and Conseco Capital Management. He has over 10 years of experience in research and analysis of securities including investment grade bonds, high yield bonds, bank loans and CLO structures.
Chicago-based Horizon Cash Management is an SEC-registered investment advisory firm with a sole focus on cash management services for hedge funds, funds of funds and other investment platforms. Current assets under management are approximately $2 billion serving over 70 accounts.
